The 2017 Maine Lobster Ride, held Sunday, July 23, at the Camden Snow Bowl, was an enormous success! Thanks to everyone who helped make this fantastic event such a great experience: riders, volunteers, sponsors and the Town of Camden, Maine.
The Bicycle Coalition of Maine’s Lobster Ride follows winding, country lanes and the breathtaking rockbound coast past lighthouses, lupines and lobster boats. The ride features four distance options, from a family-friendly 15-miles to a 100-mile route that was recognized by Bicycling Magazine as one of the TOP TEN centuries in the country, as well as mountain bike rides and skills clinics.
The Maine Lobster Ride is our biggest fundraiser of the year. It directly benefits our education, advocacy, and outreach programs that help make Maine better for biking.
